      Hi Kalidas,

      Command button is having two properties to handle your requirement.

      Method 1. Enabled property of Command button

      Commandbutton1.Enabled=True ‘This will allow user to click on the button to execute the code inside the command button event.
      Commandbutton1.Enabled=False ‘It will not execute the code even after clicking on it.

      Method 2: Visible Property of the Command button
      Commandbutton1.Visible=True ‘it will display the commandbutton
      Commandbutton1.Visible=False’it will hide the commandbutton

      Hope this helps!
